Peninsula Mines drilling update of Ubeong Zinc Project

Proactive Investors reported that Peninsula Mines Ltd has intersected significant zinc and lead sulphides in drilling at the Python target of the Ubeong Zinc Project in South Korea. A diamond hole drilled to test the lead-zinc soil anomaly/skarn target intersected multiple zones of massive, breccia and disseminated sulphides. This included a 9-metre zone from 54 metres with hand-held XRF readings of up to 22.5% lead and 21.4% zinc, averaging about 1% zinc-lead.

The base metals have potential to build value to Peninsula’s primary South Korean integrated graphite strategy.

Mr Jon Dugdale Managing director said it was the first intersection of significant zinc and lead sulphides in the area.

A second deeper diamond hole below this hole will test the intersection of the strongly mineralised structures with the skarn-limestone target at depth.

It will target massive to breccia zinc-lead-silver sulphide mineralization.

Mr Dugdale said that “This intersection of extensive zinc-lead sulphide mineralisation indicates that we have the potential for a large new, high-grade zinc and lead discovery at Python. What excites me most is that this high-grade sulphide mineralisation occurs in psammo-pelitic rocks, potentially overlying the targeted skarn massive sulphide mineralisation at depth below the lead-zinc soil anomaly.”

The hole was completed at 150.26 metres after intersecting a 27-metre zone from 42 metres downhole of variably developed massive-layered, breccia and disseminated sulphide mineralisation.

Mr Dugdale told Proactive Investors in an interview last week that the drilling at Ubeong has potential to result in a very high-grade zinc resource.
